Glad you found the dress...that's a plus at least. But yeah, alllllways take pics of your toys, especially when you first get em. Like Marsh said (especially when they're still in the bag), that helps in case a toy is flawed somehow and you can return it to the shop with documentation. I had that happen with one of my EE toys and I would have been screwed if I hadn't taken a pic and kept it in the bag.
Anywhoo, yeah, deffo take pics as soon as you get toys in the future. One, it's fun as hell to show off your new pride and joy of a dick and spam all your friends with your new pretty...It's literally the first thing I do when I get a toy, haha, as most of the pics in my camera roll can attest. XD And two, it makes tracking down missing toys MUCH easier.
Hope you find your Pearce....when I still had one last holiday season (funny story incoming!), I was afraid it had accidentally gotten shipped with a bundle of sheets and clothes off to a local laundry service cos it wasn't in the Liberator blanket I'd left it in the night before (one bathroom that's usually occupied and while maybe a lil gross to leave toys unwashed overnight, it doesn't hurt anything), so y'know, cue panic mode!
Thankfully, my roommates don't give much of a care about my toys, so I went to one of them to ask "Hey, where's my Pearce? I left it wrapped in that blanket on the bed...not where I left it, but the Pearce isn't there....have you seen it?"
Soon after finding the Pearce about 10 minutes later....on the FLOOR UNDER A BOX next to my turntable/record collection, the other roommie told me the tale.
The other roommate was gathering a little bit of laundry from the baskets in respective rooms as a courtesy, plus two of us were at work anyway and went to grab the Liberator where I'd left it in a bundle on the floor for the night. The other roommate (who'd I'd inquired about the Pearce to) immediately said "Oh, not that one...she'll take care of that blanket herself, so don't tou-"
Too late. Out came tumbling and bouncing onto the floor...Pearce and once the other roommate got over the initial shock....HE PUT A BOX OVER IT LIKE IT WAS A MOUSE!!!
He leaves one particular blanket alone these days and the other roommate still pokes fun at him for the whole incident.
Anyway, staying on topic....hope you find the Pearce and alllllways take pics of your toys, for documentation AND fun! :3
